This is our third week about the acronym G-BOMBS from Dr. Joel Furhman: O is for onions . The foods this week include the whole onion family: white, yellow and red onions as well as leeks, garlic, chives, shallots, and scallions. Each of these foods have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as anti-diabetic and anti-cancer effects. A good reason to have some every day like Dr. Fuhrman recommends.
In this video, we share more about the health benefits of onions and make a delicious salad that includes red onion along with kale, red cabbage, avocado, apple, grapes, dried berries and garbanzo beans. Join us.
Onions, raw and cooked, are such great high nutrient dense foods, helping to lower the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and even osteoporosis.
The salad is amazingly flavourful and creates a complete meal. Try it and see how you like it.
